6 people have been arrested in Kazo district after they were allegedly found selling a drug they claim treats Foot and mouth disease.
During an operation conducted by the National Drugs Authority-NDA officials, up to 10 boxes of drugs labeled Anti- Efmdi were confiscated.
Dr. Jeane Muhindo the head of veterinary products in the NDA says that the authority was tipped off by Kazo security team following adverts that were aired on Radio stations in Kiruhura and Kazo districts for treating FMD.
Muhindo noted that the same people were using the current outbreak on Foot and mouth disease in the district to blackmail farmers in the districts claiming they could treat FMD.
Samson Kasasira the Rwizi police mouthpiece confirmed the arrest of the suspects and they are now being detained at Kazo Police Station though he concealed their particulars .
